KAMLOOPS –– This thing with Sears marks the end of an era, and the ending of eras is almost always sad.
Fifty-nine stores closing, 2,900 jobs lost. It’s called “re-structuring.” Did you know that when the Kamloops store opened in 1954, it was the second one in Canada? It was Simpsons-Sears back then.
I’ve been with Simpsons-Sears and Sears for roughly 60 years.
